The beautiful black evening gown featured on the bottle of 2014's La Petite Robe Noire Couture from Guerlain announces this fragrance as the grown-up sister to La Petite Robe Noire from 2009. Bouncy raspberry rides on top, but a current of bergamot evens out the sweetness as it enhances the tartness. Pure and stately feminine beauty resides at the core with a single note of rose. The extravagance firmly grounds the bottom notes with patchouliand vetiver enlivened with touches of moss and tonka bean. The longevity seems eternal with moderate silage.
